so gladly >> generally, people who are interested in talking about politics love to engage, so they talk to us quite a bit. >> reporter: but since every pollster claims to come up with a scientific random sample eventually, how can the results be romney up by four and obama down by three at the very same time? newly minted phd economist david rothschild works at microsoft research in manhattan. rothschild looks at economic models, state polls and markets. his currently gives obama a 65% chance to win. >> i never sweat too much about any individual poll because there's too much noise. >> reporter: too much noise meaning... >> too much movement. >> reporter: take the so-called bumps - after a vice- presidential pick, or a convention. or take the first presidential debate. say you're a democrat, the morning after. a pollster calls you, you dont want anything to do with it, you're upset, you hang up that phone. they call another guy, the exact same demographics as you because they're trying to fill some sort of demographic hole or whatnot, he's a republican, hes stoked. the same pe
president, i know you're under duress -- to make up for lost ground. >> reporter: he talked about the auto bailout. >> when mr. ryan said that romney was a car guy, i thought well if they have them in an elevator, i guess he was. >> reporter: for a group of undecided voters put together in virginia, a split decision. this voter thought mr. biden won. >> the vice president did. >> why? >> i think he came off as being very strong, emotional, and i like the looking at the camera and talking to the american people. >> reporter: another, paul ryan. >> vice president joe biden was being kind of immature, with a lot of the snide -- he sneered and everything. >> reporter: and take a look at this photo, at the very top, no apology, followed by egyptian people, and alq. an interesting night, brian >> reporter: while he spends a lot of time in ohio, as polls show, now the democrats once with a wide lead, now within striking distance. >> ron mott in ohio, thank you, starting us off. >>> the argument over what happened in the libya attack and what the administration has been saying about it publicly be
is to stay longer. >> exactly. and i think when romney and ryan have talked about afghanistan, they've gotten themselves in trouble because they cannot say they want to stay longer. and then the other response, listen to the generals. what if you -- what if you disagree with the generals? are they going to listen to the generals if they want to stay for another ten years? that's unclear. >> the other thing going back to the stylistic element of that question in the debate, i think it's because we didn't actually have a foreign policy debate. we had a debate about u.s. military policy and interceptions in a free country. >> that's a good point. >> interviewed and not interviewed. >> climate change, mexico. >> china. >> brazil, china, india. any of those things. >> i want to hear more from you on foreign policy after we take a quick break. and of battery more emergency workers trust in their maglites: duracell. one reason: duralock power preserve. it locks in power for up to 10 years in storage. guaranteed. so, whether it's 10 years' of life's sunny days... or... the occasional stormy one... tr
.com. what do we know now? mitt romney doesn't know what he's talking about with respect to the deadly consequences of being uninsured. trapped as he wants between contradictory positions on health care, he reiterated his position on current status quo in which the uninshierd end up in emergency rooms. we don't have a setting across this country where if you don't have insurance we just say to you, tough luck, you're going to have to die when you have a heart attack. no. you go to the hospital, get treated, you get treatment and it's paid for. we don't have people that become ill who die in their apartment because they don't have insurance. we know back as governor of massachusetts this was precisely the kind of high cost and haphazard care that romney care was designed to avoid and we also know it just flat isn't true that no one in america dies from being uninsured. in fact, a 2009 study from harvard found that nearly 45,000 deaths each year are tied to the lack of insurance. we know the romney the romney plan would ultimately leave an estimated 72,000 without insurance. and we know
governor romney a liar and a cheater and blame jim lehrer for not -- obama talked four minutes more but that we're going to hear tonight. he's a liar and cheater, that's really a pathetic answer to what happened in that debate. and if he was a liar the president should have called him out on it. why didn't president challenge him? >> somebody want to talk? >> the most important -- >> governor rendell, i'd like to hear governor rendell's response to that first, i'm sorry. >> i don't believe you call people a liar, et cetera. look there's no question -- >> axelrod. >> -- governor romney changed his position in that debate radically. first of all he said he would sign the ryan budget which has a 20% tax cut across the board for everybody including the richest americans. number two he never explained and the president didn't call him on it how he'll account for that almost $5 trillion cut, plus the $2 trillion in military spending that they advocate which the defense department and the generals haven't even asked for. there's been no explanation of that and that's a pretty important iss
tell you that the mitt romney i know. this is a guy who -- i was talking to a family in massachusetts the other day. cheryl and mark nixon. their kids were hit in a car crash, four of them -- two of them were paralyzed. the romney's did not know that rid the to the same turf but never met before. mitt asked if he did, over christmas. he brought his boys, his wife gives. later on he said, i know you're struggling, mark. don't worry about their college, all paid for it. mitt romney doesn't tell these stories. the nixons told this story. when he told the story, he said it wasn't the help, the cash help, it was that he gave his time and has consistently. this is a man who gave 30% of his income to charity, more than the two of us combined. romney is a good man. he cares about one hatter% of americans in this country. with respect to that i think the vice president knows the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. [applause] [laughter] >> but i always say what i mean and so does romney. >> we want to get people out of @rty, in the middle-class. >> luis rodriguez, you're the vice-
romney's plan to win the white house and later more on the future changes at jpmorgan, we'll talk earnings and find out if the stock is a buy. "squawk" is back right after this. >>> it is the vice presidential debate tonight. i don't have to read it again. you know who's there and who is going to square off tonight. here is a preview of what we can expect out of the gop vp. lot of alphabet soup. reince priebus is the chairman of the republican national committee and mr. chairman it's good to see you this morning, trying to figure out where to score -- i've seen you around a lot and you know, we love hearing your side of things and then i see debbie wasserman schultz around and we hear that, and sometimes we get buried in talking points and i wonder if there's a law of diminishing returns but we're going to go here anyway and i'll start with what roger altman just said was that mr. biden needs to point out that 99% of the romney positions changed at the time of the first debate. now is that accurate in your view? >> no. listen, i don't know where this stuff's coming from. i've been
george w. bush forever. but that is not what governor romney is talking about. no they are not the same ideas. lucky governor romney. what has governor romney said about the budget? what does he want to increase? ships. 15 ships a year, three submarines a year. very very different from going into iraq or going into iran. we are convinced that the only way to stop the iranians is not to go and invade a country that large, but to be credible about what you are going to do about your sanctions, about your relationship with the israelis. win the iranian cs quarreling with the israelis, they conclude we are not going to do anything. when the iranians see us giving people exemptions, i don't care how you want to word it, and exemption is an exemption is an exemption. if it? like one, that looks like one, it looks like one. when they hear those exemptions they conclude weakness. they conclude lack of credibility. that is what we are talking about. we are not a of warmongers. nobody has set to to go invade anybody. quite the contrary and strength as you know the governor reprieves quite frankly
administration. one good debate performance out of mitt romney and now you have wall street talking about his treasury secretary. still very tight race. they are talking about kevin warsh. he is taking the initiative to trying to push his name to the top of that short list. liz: that is what your sources are telling you? charlie: one name that made the list that is not on the list is john thain. specifically, because they do not want to redo the white house bathroom. liz: on the shareholders time. speaking it is pretty controversial. liz: pretty? middle america would go crazy speaking i am trying to be somewhat nice after i just torched the guy. he is controversial. his name on the list, unless everything else falls apart or cit caught when he is managing right now, turned tremendous profits, that is not a serious candidate. warsh is a serious candidate. he is making a big push to be at the top of the list. liz: any word on who would be the labor secretary? charlie: it is piped and all that. liz: is that a term? fifteen piped in from the white house. liz: oh. do you believe that? charlie: i t
: that heightens the pressure on mitt romney for the second debate? >>guest: when you talk about unprecedented, this first debate was an inflection point. what made it amazing from statistics you see fluctuation in polling data when the undecided is high like in the presidential primary. you have undecided at 20 percent or 25 percent and people do not know the candidates yet. here the undecided was seven. in high single digits. so you saw a big swing not only in some of the swing states but in the national polls, a dramatic swing, with a low undecided. that is what makes this an unprecedented move. >>neil: it must speak to the possibility, the possibility, that the president's support or a good many other supporters are not as strong or in his column as he thinks. given an appealing alternate they could and indeed will switch. what do you think? >>guest: that is the key. an aping alternate. right now, the national voter pie has, the approval rating of president obama at 47 percent or 48 percent is close enough to make a difference especially in the key states. what mitt romney has done is he h
definitely agree with the lady talking to about the foreign policy issue because i think mitt romney is an opportunist. like he went and disrespected all of our allies. you know, he's just an opportunist. he kisses up to benjamin netanyahu on foreign policy. i think obama is actually steadfast spirit and alchemy type to benjamin netanyahu on the phone for hours, so it's not like he's been dodging them. he doesn't kisses up to our foreign leaders. he talks to them like a leader, just like the debate, obama held his head up high and didn't have his head down, looking down like everybody said he did. as far as the media, i don't think the real motives, i think a lot of people just followed with the media was saying as far as what he was talking about. i mean, what the media didn't hold his head up high. he was very presidential outcome of real calm. i think mitt romney was desperate. >> host: we will have the candidates debate foreign policy specifically in the coming weeks. do you reflect on the earlier part of what he was saying? >> guest: clearly more a common set of questions, but i
, no changes for anybody 55 -- >> what mitt romney is proposing -- >> the kinds changes we're talking about for younger people like myself is don't increase the benefits for wealthy people as fast as anybody else, slowly raise the retirement age over time. >> look, these guys haven't been big on medicare from the beginning. their party has not been big on medicare from the beginning and they've always been about social security, as little as you can do. folks, use your common sense. who do you trust on this? >> and that is a heck of a question, looking square into that television screen. we know about 5% of the people out there, ann, identify themselves as undecided. who was most effective, particularly on this medicare debate? >> well, look, it presented a very stark choice. i think people who are paying attention to the election probably already knew, which is if you like the system the way it is, then the democratic tick set probably more in line with your thinking and if you want change, whether because you think the system is broken or you think it's not allocated appropriately, then t
've got 42 electoral votes are you talking about. mitt romney remains down in the state of ohio. that is one his campaign believes he must win to get to 270 electoral votes. he's down six, 51%-45% in that state. however, mitt romney got on a wave in denver last week and paul ryan has a chance tonight, guys, to continue that momentum, an interesting match-up, we've seen it before of an older, experienced vice president, a younger less tested running mate. we saw it with dick cheney and with john edwards in 2004. dick cheney got the better of that. we saw it with lloyd benson and dan quayle in 1988. it appeared that lloyd benson got the better of that, but of course george bush and dan quayle won the election. i talked to dan quayle yesterday -- or a few days ago, rather, he said he thinks he helped george h.w. bush in that race, even though he got smacked down with that "you're no jack kennedy" line, because he took the fight to michael dukakis and that's the bottom line that you hear from people who have been through these debates, is that the key for vice presidential candidate
. back to melissa and lori. melissa: thank you so much. who will mitt romney choose as secretary treasury if he wins? charlie gasparino has all the details. i am dying of curiosity. charlie: we should point out, look at what one good debate performance does. we were talking about tim geithner stepping down. people thought based on the polls -- melissa: you are killing me speaking now looking at two maybe -- romney. this is called a hit. i get to talk. melissa: i will tell you what a hit is. [laughter] charlie: this is called doing a story. you do not know because you are interrupting me. i would have said it by now if you did not interrupt me. lori: can we guess? here it is. here it is. charlie: kevin borsch -- former fed governor. here is what gives him, i think, it is both a positive and negative. major player during the financial crisis. a close person with bernanke. word close with timothy geithner. that is a positive to some extent. also a negative. melissa: they had a falling out. charlie: let me finish what i am saying here. melissa: we are so excited about the story. charlie: yes,
," mitt romney delivers a foreign policy speech at vmi. critics saying it fell a bit short on detail. we'll talk with the president on the council of foreign relations in just a minute. and we'll huddle around the water cooler where big bird remains center stage in this presidential campaign thanks to president obama's campaign. we'll show you their new ad when we come back. >>> we told you after being down almost 20 pins with women just a month ago, mitt romney has effectively closed the gender gap according to one poll. romney stands even with the president among female voters in the latest pugh survey. should romney end up getting more of the female vote than the president does in the general, he'd be the first republican to do that in 24 years. want to sound smart today, tell your friends the last republican presidential candidate to win the female vote, george h.w. bush. they favored him over michael dukakis by a single percentage point that day. the number of female voters xeeted every male voter in every presidential election since 1964. >>> all right, let's huddle up around the w
with infrastructure. david, it has to do with mitt romney's brilliant tax reform plan to lower the rates and broaden the base and cap the deductions. we're going to talk about that in the next segment with arthur laffer and jared bernstein. but don't you think there's potential here for a political and economic revolution? and if a pro-growth revolution comes, american entrepreneurs, american small businessmen and women are poised, they are poised to torque up the animal spirits and give this a great lift. i think people in the stock market are missing this, david goldman. >> larry, markets have never been good about predicting elections and discounted them. but the fact is, we have more capital waiting on the sidelines -- >> right. >> -- rearing to go, demanding returns, demanding income than we've ever had before. and we have a world that's hungrier for growth with half the world's population at the cusp of industrialization. so a romney presidency, in my view, would give us one of the great stock market booms in the history. absent that, if we get obama and we get the multitrillion-dollar deficit

said six times, he talked about the youtube video. now they're trying to blame the ryan-romney ticket for making this an issue. >> steve: of course, that's what they were talk being yesterday. so who won? cnn and cnbc did polls and mr. ryan was on top. cbs had one with some focus group. they felt that the vice president won. peggy nuland writes fort second time in two weeks, the democrat came out and defeated himself. in both cases, the republican was strong and the democrat somewhat disturbing. another way to say it is the old man tried it patronize the kid and the kid stood his ground. the old man pushed and the kid pushed back. >> brian: she did not mean that complimentary. >> gretchen: i actually think had is a debate that's going to percolate over a couple of days. when people go back and read and maybe see video and see this reaction, i think it may percolate over time where people will maybe change their opinion of exactly how it went. >> brian: it was -- >> gretchen: i think a lot of people -- i think it rubbed them the wrong way with the attitude. the headlines now. one month

side. he's also being more aggressive in defending himself. at his family's urging, romney-- a private man-- has been telling personal stories of helping others. today in iowa he talked of meeting a former navy seal who was killed, along with three other americans, in the attacks in libya. >> and it -- it touched me, obviously, as i recognized this young man that i thought was so impressive had lost his life in the service of his fellow men and women. >> reporter: now, romney is also being more forceful in defending himself from those attacks as he focuses on these states that could decide the election. scott, he will be here in ohio four days this week. >> pelley: thank you, jan. also in ohio is our political director john dickerson. john, how much should we make of romney's new momentum? >> reporter: well, here in the state they're seeing it all over the place. the lines for tickets for an event in the northeastern part of the state were so long that officials here are saying that it might be the biggest of romney's entire campaign. but campaign officials are cautious. they know it's
a mandate to do anything, if romney is elected high said he is not cutting defense, what is he talking about. 700 billion. i'm not touching social security that 800 billion, heart of tte entitlement how do you deal with the problem. neil: maybe, show a direct. right, bill clinton did that in 1993 with a plan that showed real spending slowing, and deficits curbing. and he did not solve is overnight, i'm not saying he did it alone but he gave the markets a sense of direction, if they do, that is know much of the monkey off their back? >> i don't think so, it 20 years later we had a party like never been a party before. we're now objectively 20 trillion in debt, they say number is 16, but there is so much built into the pipeline it will be 20 trillion before a new -- could get to that june 30th date that you talk about, further more it is being financed at low interest rates, because the fed has its thumb on the scale. we're borrowing today 5 year money for treasury at 70 basis points, that is a rounding error, it cannot last, if you have 20 trillion of debt and interest rates begin it normaliz
'm talking about mitt romney. i will take my answer of the year. >> i think we want someone who can create jobs and not someone who's going to take -- make bets on failed solar companies. we want someone who is going to create jobs and i think mitt romney has shown he has the ability to create jobs. many of their retailers you currently buy, whether it is a staple for other companies, he created. i think he has a record of creating jobs and a record of reviving institutions that were failing such as the salt lake city olympics. we have a great opportunity here and we need to create jobs to grow this economy. >> the only thing i would take issue with is that he says obama has not been successful. what earl -- what is success? is it making a lot of money or is it helping out this country? the problem with that romney's record as he has gone in, taken over companies, laid-off workers, increased his bottom line, but hurt the communities he is in. this is the choice of voters have in the house races. are going to send people to congress and will help these big corporations improve their bottom

barbs on last night's vp debates. we'll talk with andrea saul, press secretary for romney, next on cnbc. >>> there was laughing, interrupting and attacks from both sides during last night's vice presidential debate. taxes were a contentious issue during the economic portion of that. take a listen. >> there aren't enough rich people in small businesses to tax to pay for all their spending. and so the next time you hear them say don't worry about it, we'll get a few wealthy people to pay their fair share, watch out middle class. the tax bill is coming to you. >> andrea saul is the national press secretary for the romney campaign, joins us from campaign headquarters in boston. andrea, good morning. great to have you. >> good morning, thanks for having me. >> let's get the style out of the way. right? because that's what everybody wants to talk about. it's the easiest to relate to. it didn't take long for the rnc to put together an ad compiling all of biden's laughter moments, which people have talked about a lot last night and today. it's been said, if you're going to argue or complain abo
are in poverty, we need to continue to take care of them. as i drew the difference between governor romney and myself, when he talked about those in poverty, i said they haven't chosen to be there. i would not cut our food stamp programs now because we need to make sure those folks can continue to be taken care of. but let's get them a job and get them back to work so families can progress. >> again, this is just about numbers. if you except this tax cut number, the only way to account for it is to have massive cut to these programs that do put people to work and grow jobs and take care people when they are out of work. you have to look at the work i have done. i've committed my life to standing up to the most vulnerable among us. some of the work i do on these issues may be don't get the big headlines. i wrote a piece of legislation, the support of housing investment act, named after a great advocate for anti-homeless this in connecticut that would triple the amount of housing units built for the most vulnerable among us. people have very grave mental illnesses and physical handicaps that
, what's the thinking on governor romney's bounce in the polls since that first big debate? >> they are very pumped here. the romney campaign is quite excited. they say there is more to come. they're building and talking about their ground game, grassroots, 4 million people have been contacted here in ohio alone. 4 1/2 million. that's more than a third of the overall population. the polls have ticked up. romney has closed the gap, leading in some of the national polls, within the mar i didn't know of error, and in most of the battle ground states, he's either closed the gap and in a couple of cases, gone up by a point or two. these are swings in the polls. he's eliminated any bounce the president had gotten from his convention with the own bounce he got last week. with the vice presidential debate this week and two more presidential debathes and generally both campaigns have recognized for the better part of the last year that this race was always going to hover at a close to even tie, 45-47 apiece and it will be decided probably in the last two weeks to ten days as that la

of loose talk. >> it was on the ascenden as i when we took office. it is now totally isolated. >> and he went where barack obama would not by referring to the secretly-filmed video where romney referred to the middle class as -- >> with respect to that quote, i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your knockout right way. >> he took that on the chin but little else from afghanistan to syria, medicare to taxes, neither man was giving ground. >> and still preserve the middle class -- >> not mathematically possible. >> it is. it's been done before. >> it has never been done before. >> it has been done a couple times before. >> now you're jack kennedy? >> but there was an under current of mutual respect and when it ended the two families joined them on stage. in the polls they were wondering if this man did enough to restore team obama's confidence. >> 10 years ago indonesia underwent the boly bombings many torturists from pretty much all over the world. survivors have been back to bomby to commemorate the anniversary. security was tight after t
the president of the united states talking about fancy private jets not doing that well. you had romney wanting to spend more on the defense. if you think president obama is going to be reelected, you don't want to be in raytheon, frankly. you're going to have to do some little selling. let's go to kierein in florida. kierein? >> caller: boo-yah, jim cramer here in sunny florida. >> like that. what is up? >> caller: listen, i see that united health care purchased 90% of the brazilian health care companies down there. where do you see the stock go from here? and what do you think if romney's elected president? >> it's not as good. it's not as good if romney is elected president. because what happened is the health companies and the drug corporations went all in under obama. i know it sounds silly, but they did win. unh goes higher with president obama is re-elected. that brazilian thing showed their growth is no longer limited by the united states. i like that. if you love playing kick the can as a kid, as i did, you should have adored as an investor in an u.s.-based company as u.s. europe kicke

're going to talk to one of the congressmen who is running the hearing today. thanks, elise. >>> let's get to our top stories. john berman has that first. >> a lot of news this morning. mitt romney enjoying a nice bounce in the buckeye state. look at the brand new cnn/orc poll of likely voters in ohio after the first presidential debate. the president's lead there shrinking to four points. that is well within the margin of error. that makes the race for 18 electoral votes a statistically dead heat. before the debate some polls had the president ahead by ten points, i should say barack obama only beat john mccain in ohio by four points. i think they would take a four-point win there, no problem. mitt romney's not flip-flopping on big bird after he promised to cut fund for pbs. the obama camp went on the attack accusing the republican nominee of trying to kill the prop particular sesame street character. here's what he told wolf blitzer last night 12k3w4r big bird is going to be just fine. sesame street is a wonderful enterprise. cnn does not get funding but somehow y'all stay on the air. i
. we wouldn't have had bill clinton without the koch brothers. people talk about the koch brothers as if they're republicans. right now they've invested - they don't make donations, they make investments - in the romney campaign. and they gave $150,000 illegally to bob dole. he got caught, he had to give it back. but then they gave $100,000 to create the democratic leadership council, which is the vehicle that this guy from arkansas rode right into the white house. > > very quickly, why aren't media reporters like you digging these facts up? > > i think they don't have my hat, and even more important is that they don't have the producers that do the old style investigative reporting. i work for bbc. i'm on the top of the nightly news there, the front page of the big paper the guardian. people really don't want to know in america that their elections have been bought up. the subtitle of "billionaires & ballot bandits" is "how to steal an election in 9 easy steps," and, frankly, they don't want to hear that one of the things these guys buy is making sure your ballot doesn't get count

can turn his wonkiness, his mastery of numbers into something like mitt romney in the first debate to empathy and personalize it. bill: everybody is on record what they expect. you talk about the expectations. everybody lowballs the stuff including to the president to a degree. here is what he said on abc with diane sawyer. >> i think joe needs to be joe. congressman ryan is a smart and effective speaker but his ideas are the wrong ones. bill: hang onto that word ideas because it will come up a lot tonight. we have not seen joe biden in six days. >> yeah. six days off the campaign trail because he is studying. he is cramming. he is doing debate prep. that is quite something. you know, in the wake of the president's debate, first debate with mitt romney, there has been this back and forth. we've heard just bits and pieces of this debate performance between joe biden and his debate sparring partner which is congressman chris van hollen from maryland, who is by the way the ranking member of the house budget committee and knows paul ryan very well. but he has been doing a lot of practi
talked about commonality but i have been around mitt romney. he is a great -- he is a man of great faith and a strong family values. given the opportunity, i know he will lead this country with honesty and integrity. you might disagree with his policies, i disagree with the president. but i try not to question his motives or his goals. i would hope that the voters get turned off by negativity. i hope that both sides can return some civility to this process and maybe not be quite as divided. i hope we are able to move forward as a country. >> northeastern ohio, the state legislature, thank you for being with us. >> president obama returns to ohio as he speaks at a campaign rally in columbus. starting at 5:00 p.m. eastern on c-span. on tomorrow morning's washington journal, foreign policy magazine examine mitt romney's foreign policy speech. the l.a. times and tribune newspapers come oup with a solution. they rate the current state of the u.s. housing market. the washington journal, like every morning starting at 7:00 a.m. eastern. >> and this government has maintained the closest surveill
. in that debate, romney put a lot of substance on the table. that is what i think the voters have been looking for. something to give them an explanation on why it is more. dagen: you talk about the substance, but how the president is communicating at this point and how his campaign is communicating. the use of the word liar by the campaign, in a debate you start to have to have a conversation with another person and with the american people are says just talking at someone thought he has had the luxury of doing that for four years. >> they came out of that debate, three major figures including his major advisors saying mitt romney is a liar about his tax plan. i do not think the american people are sitting out there waiting to have the president of the united states campaign saying that the republican nominee is a liar. barack obama at this point has the ability to debate somebody on substance. he has not done that very often through his presidency. connell: see you next week. thank you, dan. dagen: if only we could see you every week. connell: thank you, dan. dagen: dan, great to see you. the pr
can you respond if in the back row of the audience mitt romney stood up and said mr. kaplan, you are being defeatist. you are walking away from america's historical role, america is the essential power and you are talking about necessary decline. >> i am not being defeatist. i am being sly. i want american influence to extend long into the decades but it cannot do that bearing the same exact level of burden we have been bearing now. in the middle east we cannot confront russia, cannot confront china and be the hegemon in the greater middle east in leslie. we have to move closer to vladimir putin to balance against china but at the same time not let countries like vietnam and the philippines drag us into a war with china over the south china sea. it is about clever balancing and in any case the u.s. has so much shale oil deposits in texas, louisiana and other places i could name which is about geography that we are going to be because of energy reserves going to be a significant power for decades to come in any case so now is the time to try to get allies and like-minded others to
